Mulholland Drive is a very long & winding road that is famous for outstanding views and wonderful scenery throughout its many miles of paved glory. Well worth a leisurely drive to see spectacular mansions & estates, as well as beautiful nature & views such as the Hollywood Bowl Overlook. Be sure to bring your camera--even better if it has video... More

What fun! Our group of 100 people dressed in full Bavarian costume attended the Sound of Music Sing-Along with 20,000 other crazy people. The Hollywood Bowl is a legendary place with a view of the Hollywood hills and famous sign. It is outdoors, so take a light jacket. You can bring a full picnic meal with your choice of drinks...

Through the years, the Hollywood Bowl continues to impress as a wonderful concert venue. The view of the stage is excellent no matter where you are sitting, although seating in the rear sections are tight. The sound is very impressive, and is more natural-sounding than many enclosed venues. The food offering is only average tasting. Parking is stacked-parking, so taking... More

It's outdoors, so.... check the weather. Bring a jacket because it gets chilly at night. Getting to your seats from parking is a LONG walk uphill, so wear comfortable shoes. I recommend getting seats in the front boxes. It is a little more expensive, but the have tables and waiters to serve food, beer and wine. You can pack a... More

The best way to get to the performance is to use Public Trx. check out the web site. www.HollywoodBowl.com/concert. You can get the times on the web site. Also it is best... More

I first notice people on the ridge from sitting in the Bowl. They looked like the opening scene in Lawrence of Arabia coming over the hill. Since then,I've gone myself. You can hear the music and eat your own quiet picnic. Bring a chair.

This is a wonderful outdoor venue for concerts and music festivals. A friend and I went to hear the LA Philharmonic orchestra and the sound system is fabulous. You can hear and see from anyplace in the bowl. You can pack food and eat prior to the concert. There are picnic areas but you can also just eat in your... More

Great outdoor venue in a prime location. It's hard to find a decent outdoor venue in such heavily populated area but Hollywood Bowl is just that.

This view of the city is easily recognizable. This is an easy stop along Mulholland Drive, and I would recommend it to everyone. There is a small parking area with constant tour busses pulling in, but you can park along the drive and walk over if need be without a problem.
